The Passion Of The Eagles-Cowboys Rivalry

Trevor Laws, Tony RomoHaving disgust for the Cowboys is natural, like blinking or breathing.  As with learning addition and subtraction, a family member, friend or mentor taught us the Philadelphia football education.   We knew at an early age the “star” was something we despised.    There was no room for “why” questions, only “final” answers for this lesson plan.

I hate hearing about the championships.  I can’t stand listening to the words coming out of the mouth from Cowboy fans.  The fact that so many of them live in the Philadelphia and surrounding area is irritating to think about.  I want to end their season and be crowned NFC East Champions.

A week 17 victory rewards us with a second season, the playoffs.  That alone generates an excitement in the awaiting days, but it’s versus Dallas, Sunday Night Football, the stage is even bigger.

Who the quarterback ends up for Dallas contributes to how we prepare.  Does it serve as a distraction for Chip, his coaching staff and his players?  Witnessing the response the Eagles gave after the Vikings loss, I’m confident this team is fully prepared with what is on the line.

One game, what matters is “winning.”

“The fight”, this is Philadelphia, we fight.  Mr. Jerry Jones, know that the team in the visitor locker room this Sunday night is going to punch “America’s Team” in the mouth.

Some of us predicted pre-season the Eagles would make the playoffs.  Others saw 2013 as one of rebuilding, while the rest of the fan base were somewhere in between.

Whichever fan you were, what matters is the fan you are at this present moment.

Bleed green and hate the Dallas Cowboys.  Support your Eagles properly on Sunday when watching the game.

When was the last time you felt this way about an Eagles game?

For me, it’s all I can think about, it’s consuming me.

With Week 17′s match against the Dallas Cowboys shaping up to be a showdown for the division, Denny Basens and Jeff Kolsky are planning to get a group together to watch the game at XFINITY Live, and we would like to extend invitations to any and all readers of GCobb.com to come out and join us.

Denny and Jeff plan to be at XFINITY at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. Keep an eye out for Jeff, who will be wearing a Tony Romo voodoo doll around his neck that can’t be missed along with a Mike Quick Jersey and a black early 90’s logo Eagles hat. We sincerely appreciate all who read, comment, and make this website great, and we’d love the opportunity to meet some of the readers and experience a great game together.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Denny at dbasens@ycp.edu.

i’m expecting eagles to humiliate these cowgirls and send them back poledancing like the little bitches that they are hehehehehehe

No is no way in hell Dallas wins this game. NO WAY! How could it possibly happen? We are the better team in all phases of the game. Coaching, QB, offense, Defense and Special Teams. And we are the hotter team. I just don’t see a Minnesota game happening again especially after learning our lesson.

When we win who will be our 1st round playoff matchup?

NFL… If you watch closely the impossible happens all the time. I guess I should get a dog but I remember two games where all the stars were aligned in our favor and the impossible happened… The joe west game and the NFC championship game, last game at the vet, 15 degrees, sissy Tampa in the cold…I have NEVER been more confident than that Tampa game…oh well put up 50 and head into the playoffs

We’re going to be the first team in 50 years to have over 4000 yards passing and 2400 rushing yards in a season in a season where the number one rushing team in the league and Desean and Mccoy are both having a career seasons there’s no reason why we shouldn’t blow these bums out by at least 21 28 points points they have the quarterback of the offense and defense out andtheir. best wide receier is not a hundred percent. Chip Kelly will expose Monte Kiffin is bumb ass for what he is and put to rest that fluke game we had in week 7

2 Players/Scebarios I am concerned about
RB D Murray & TE J Whitten
If Cowboys get off to a good Start running the ball
And moving the chains and eating up clock and allow Orton to get in a Rhythm
And comfortable withbthevPlay-action Passes
Then it will be a close game ..

Apparently GCobb won’t let my initial post through that I was posting yesterday, so I will try to post it again a little differently, but I think all you Eagles fans will enjoy this video that is blowing up. When I first posted the video yesterday, it had less than 100 views, now it has over 50000. It is a video of Chip Kelly during the Redskins game having an interaction with Cooper. I think you all will enjoy it……


Take out the word “dot” and replace it with a .

I’m sorry…. Over 40000 now, not 50000

There’s no guarantee of shit so why talk about how to feel going into the playoffs

That being said, if the eagles lose this game it’s a disaster, I don’t think it will happen for three reasons:

1. Nick foles. This guy competes. It gnaws at him the first cowboys game. He will rise to this challenge, he always has following bad, mediocre games, and he wants this game more than any other in his young career. He’s prepared, no doubt, thanks to what will be a great gameplan, early with the pass, short to intermediates, bubbles, tight ends then shady runs, then play action, setting up long passes.

2. The cowboys defense is atrocious, mismatches all over the field, especially with a pumped up McCoy who wants to shatter records.

3. The cowboys have no quarterback.

We know anything can happen, but while it is favorable for the eagles, no karma jinxes with looking past these scumbag cowboys

Klye Orton, Murray, Dez Bryant and Jason Witten with the Dallas defense is better than Matt Cassell, their 3rd string rb and Greg Jennings. Be very very careful Eagles.

Peters and McCoy make pro bowl. What a joke! I would argue that Jason Peters is the 4th best lineman on the team behind Mathis(who has been rated the best guard in the NFL), Kelce and yes Lane Johnson who has had a great rookie campaign.

December 28, 2013 5:15 am

Congrats to Nick Foles for making Pro-bowl. He is 1st alternate and w/o a doubt you would think Manning, Brady, Wilson, or Newton will be playing in SB. So Foles will be in Hawaii. I also think DJax and Mathis will be there to with either ssome players in SB or declining because of injuries. Congrats Nick Foles!

December 28, 2013 6:59 am

Dude manning and Brady are in the afc, but that’s alright maybe nick will be playing in the SB…stranger things have happened!

December 28, 2013 9:33 am

Haveacigar its all mixed together now. There is no AFC/NFC teams

ok you got me there! As with most people I don’t even think about watching one snap of the probowl! I don’t put too much stock in it anyway as its a reputation thing– but congrats to peters and mccoy– i guess congrats to nick for being an alternate!

The Pro-Bowl Selections are made of the Top
2-3 Players at Each Pisition regardless on what Conference they Pkay in now
Then once the Players are Selected, Jerry Rice & Deon Sanders will Select Players to pkay for their Reapective Teams which is stupid for you could have Yeammates playing on opposite sides..
D-Jax , if he makes it in could be catching Passes
From Tom Brady or Andrew Dalton
While Foles could be passing to Josh Gordon
Or Steekers Anthony Brown.. Why even Play the game anymore
Announce the 2-3 Best Players at Each Position as Voted by their Peers & Coach’s and then recognize them during the Super Bowl and be done with it…
It’s a crock…

Sorry for the terrible spelling… Good Grief!!

Is it possible that Foles might not be able to make the trip to Hawaii? Could he be getting ready for his first Superbowl appearance? Just a thought..lol
